CH: Companies partner up to enter Asia hemp market

Asian industrial hemp company CannAcubed Pte Ltd signed a strategic and exclusive joint venture agreement with one of Macao's and China’s fastest-growing tobacco and hemp product innovation companies, Macao Red Cloud Tobacco Group. The agreement was signed between the parties at Red Cloud’s corporate China office in the first-tier city of Dongguan in central Guangdong Province, China.

Macao Red Cloud Tobacco Group is a Macao local enterprise specially approved by the Special Administrative Region Government in 2010. With product development and technical research offices in Guangzhou and Kunming, China, manufacturing facilities in Indonesia and sales distribution channels in the UAE, Africa, Australia and the U.S. After cooperating with CannAcubed, the group is preparing to launch the first batch of industrial hemp and CBD products in China. 

Next month, the company is expected to release China's first natural soft-capsule food containing CBD ingredients in mainland China. In addition, with this strategic cooperation with CannAcubed, the new joint venture will continue to develop CBD application technology around Red Cloud's cigarette and tobacco product line. It is believed that these unique technologies will win broad market space and opportunity once applied.

CannAcubed is one of the first companies in Asia to have an international footprint and major hemp project in the region being China. Headquartered in Singapore, the group has set up 100-percent foreign-owned licensed entities in Hong Kong and Guangzhou. Recently, CannAcubed secured two large factory sites in Chuxiong, Yunnan, totaling 13,000 meters squared, where it has already begun design work for CBD production, processing and research.

The company is currently growing on just under 400 acres this year in Lufeng and Wuding and will export from Kunming where it is setting up its China head office. CannAcubed intends to scale up significantly in 2020 and beyond, with a heavy focus on product development for domestic and global distribution.

“Partnering with CannAcubed made perfect sense for us,” Red Cloud’s Group CEO Jimmy Wang stated. “We’ve focused heavily on product research and development and we now have the upstream and downstream taken care of.”

According to the company, the partnership will focus entirely on hemp, CBD and hemp-derivative products and research. Product development for the joint venture has already begun with hemp/CBD beer, CBD cigarettes and CBD facial masks being first on the list.

The new joint venture will set up its global distribution out of Macao and the domestic company likely will be in CannAcubed’s head office in Kunming.
